op and at a rally, with condoleezza rice. you know, there are a lot of former george w. bush administration officials advising the romney campaign. but even they, you would think, would be sort of cognizant of how people view that administration, right? you think they would recognize that there is a little political peril in trying to underscore to a country that is really paying attention right now that everybody should expect a lot of continuity between the george w. bush years and a romney presidency. if you like the george w. bush years and you miss all those folks, like condoleezza rice, don't worry, if you elect romney, you'll see more of them again. this came up last night in what i thought was a brilliant question from one of the audience members at that debate at hofstra, and it got right at the central problem that the republicans have been dealing, since the support for romney creatored during the george w. bush second term. the greatest show on earth has been the republican party figuring out who it is after bush and cheney. the republican party figuring out if th
is underscored by two fax. both george bush and michael bad -- michael dukakis said their running mates would reveal a lot about themselves. based on the history, there is almost a 50-50 chance that one of the men here tonight will become president of the united states. the candidates are senator dan quayle and lloyd bentsen, the democratic nominee. [applause] for the next 90 minutes, we will be questioning the candidates following a format designed and agreed to by representatives of the two campaigns. however, there are america rigid restrictions on the questions my colleagues and i may ask. the first question goes to senator quayle. you have to the minister responded. you have been criticized for your decision to stay out of the vietnam war, for your poor economic -- academic record. more troubling by some of the comments to have made in your own party. a separate -- secretary of the state said your peck was the dumbest mistake george bush could have made it. your leader added to the senate said a better qualified person could have been chosen. other republicans have been more critical in
. i think it was your average voter and george bush then had trouble kind of deciphering what the person was saying and bill clinton walked away from the podium and came up to the individual and i said to myself there goes the election. george bush just lost. >> just that one little turn for things to happen in your opinion. >> exactly. sort of a human touch and i think president obama has an opportunity to redeem himself and resuscitate his candidacy. >> i want to move on because we don't have a lot of time, but the audience in debate is supposed to be unpartisan undecided voters. what can you tell us about this group? >> they figured out because the undecideds are very minimal, but the group that fits in in terms of a generic classification and listen to me is unmarried, white, noncollege educated women. that's the target group both candidates are going. >>> i want to touch on libya making national med lines, romney campaign hammering on this -- headlines, romney campaign hammering on this. why are they staying on this and not the economy? >> now they think there's another v
, problems with w., a question about former president george w. bush throughs romney for a loop. we will ponder his head scratching answer involving venezuelans next on "now." ♪ i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans? [ female announcer ] people who choose more whole grain tend to weigh less than those who don't. multigrain cheerios >>> perhaps most notorious and least discussed republican of the 2012 election is former president george w. bush. someone mitt romney would prefer to keep in the recesses of the american imagination, unsurprisingly when asked about the elephant in the room last night, and how his policies differ from w.'s, romney was less than forthcoming. >> thank you. i appreciate that question. i just want to make sure that i think i was supposed to get that last answer but i want to point out that i don't believe -- >> i don't think so, candy. i want to make sure our time keepers are working here. >> after a brief detour romney finally answered the question by focusing on venezuela. >> president bush and i are dif
, president george w. bush, the time he spent in ohio, florida, pennsylvania, and you can certainly find examples of presidents attending to the electoral concerns, but i said what we see if we look at it systematically, if we looked at it over decades, with the presidents do, what patterns would play out and is there a disproportionate focus on the electoral matters to the estimates and what did you fight? >> the short answer is that we have seen a substantial increase in the time that presidents devote to electoral concerns. and the clear indicator is fund-raising. if a president goes to ohio to years before the election is either because it is one of the largest states because he cares about the good people of ohio or because it is likely to edge in the presidential election? that is a bit harder to say, but what is unambiguously electoral is the presidential fund-raising. and that we have seen escalate over the past three and a half decades. we've also seen a rise in strategic travel and disproportionate focus on battleground states and the key nominating states. not just in the elec
different than george w. bush. look at this terrible answer. >> romney: president bush and i are different people and these are different times. we can now by virtue of new technology get all the energy we need in north america without having to go to the arabs or venezuelans, that wasn't true in his time. number two trade, i would expand trade in latin america. i'll present a balanced budget. president bush didn't. president obama is right. it was outrageous to have deficits of. >> cenk: that's the best you got? we don't need the arabs any more and i'm going to kick some chinese ass? that was horrible. do you know why he doesn't have a good answer? because he does have the same plan as george w. bush. that is to cut more taxes than bush and create more wars than george w. bush in the middle east. that's not all. president obama took that opportunity to pile on and talk about the social side of romney as well. watch. >> obama: there are some things where governor romney is different from george bush. george bush did not propose turning medicare into a voucher. george bush embraced comprehe
being in denial. >> we did not go through the decade of george w. bush and the last four years of rock obama, but what they have had to deal with, in fairness, is 9/11, a couple of wars that require a lot of spending, the tax cuts of george bush -- i am not sure where you stood on those, but they did eat into the amount of money we had to spend -- and then the recession, which was some say close to a depression. did that time prevent us from being able to make deficits and debt a top priority? >> it should not have. it could have, but it should not have come out if people were thinking clearly, if they were well educated, if they even understood this whole damn thing, which they do not. if you say what percentage of the american people understand this, i would say it is a very low number. it to be everybody, and everybody should say this is my country. people should be very active about not letting anything damaged our country. the one thing we have not mentioned at all, there is no question at all in my mind, if we keep going this way, some nation is going to head over here to take us
romney is different than george bush. let me play that answer for you. >> president bush had a very different path, very different time. my path is designed in getting small businesses to grow and help people. >> george bush didn't propose turning medicare into a voucher. george bush embraced comprehensive immigration reform. he didn't call for self-deportation. george bush never suggested that we eliminate funding for planned parenthood. so there are differences between governor romney and george bush but they are not on economic policy. in some ways he's gone to a more extreme place when it comes to social policy. >> now, what's interesting about that, rick, you've got governor romney saying the difference between bush and himself is different eras, different time. you have the president really dealing with the bigger issue of how the republican party has shifted on social issues even more to the right than george bushes time and really raising some specifics. what's happened to the party and romney that is the personification of the party 2012 as opposed to george bush who did re
of the obama campaign. >> dana was press security in george bush's administration. she is now a fox news host. >> imagine if he would have said as commander in chief, it's important for me to stay back in the white house. how responsible. >> once he made a statement i'm not sure what he should have done. >> obviously to be in mourning for several days and not go about our daily business. >> hillary clinton suggests the attack was just a spontaneous demonstration about the anti-islam video. >> there is no justification, none at all for a responding to this video with violence. >> reporter: current white house press secretary says flat out the next day. >> these protests were in reaction to a video. we have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. >> and later that day when the president and secretary of state greet the deceased at joint base andrews, clinton talks again about the video. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with. >> september 15th, california authorities they call in the man tha
are agreeing. obama hasn't got the middle class out of the hole that happened under george bush's watch and policies of george bush. but look at the review. broadly obama has sought policies to decrease taxes on the middle class. 16 taxings decreased for maul business and 3600 for the class that are done underneath this president. >> it sounds smart because of the accent. wayne, two examples. taxes that are in place and taxes that are coming in the end of the year and alling the class and behaabout the issue regulation. is that the issue that is burying the middle class. >> regulation is more of the issue. we get the bush tax cut in effect. and the idea that the last four years you have had massive taxings. no they are yet to come. man date for noncompliance in 2014 and cadillac tax in 2018 and special kids in 2013. they were not taxes of the last four years they are taxes of the future. you have had massive regulation in the last four years and executive orders coming out of the federal government and viserating the congressional man date and letting the bureaucracy run the country and
maddow. >>> after eight years of george w. bush, america made a clear choice. >> bomb iran, bomb, bomb, bomb, any ya. >> in our last election, war was at the center of the debate. >> at the time when the war started, you said it would be quick and easy. you knew where the weapons of mass destruction were. you were wrong. >> four years has gone by. the war in iraq, over. bin laden, dead. the middle east and revolution in chaos. dictators overthrown and a new american election that was never supposed to hinge on foreign policy comes down to a last debate on foreign policy. >> you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration? >> the polls are tied. the election is 15 days away. voting is already underway in ne nearly every swing state. and it is because of that shear competitive need that america's longest war still grinding on and our veterans and our diplomacy and our role in the world is thrust back to center stage. msnbc's coverage of the third and final presidential debate begins right now. >>> happy debate night. th
vulnerabilitiment he had no answer and it showed. >> what's did biggest difference between you and george w. bush and how do you differentiate yourself from george w. bush? >> great. thank you. and i appreciate that question. i just want to make sure that i think i was supposed to get that last answer but i want to point out that i don't believe -- >> so biggest vulnerability, looks evasive and gets around to say it's different because of no china and obama care and balancing the budget. that's the problem. the economic prescription, tax prescription proposing is bush -- it's identical. cut the taxes and worry about the deficit later. the woman that's interviewed and said she is not satisfied with romney's answer and wants to give obama four more years. >> i chose the same answer and obama's part of the answer with tying romney to bush with is the similarities and following romney said, he's worse than bush. >> george bush didn't propose turning medicare in to a voucher. george bush embraced comprehensive immigration reform. he didn't call for self deportation. george bush never suggested that he
that was george w. bush, who had held about half that amount. he broke the clinton's record and so on. so it's important to know it's a story. it's meant to bomb its critic is quick to jump on him for devoting so much time to fundraising. and he absolutely has broken records. but there's a very understandable reason why. and what we've seen in presidential fundraising is an unintentional consequence of the rules of our political system, that we have campaign finance rules designed to reduce corruption or the appearance of corruption. and to do limit the amounts of money that presidents are candidates can raise from any individual or any group. the idea is you cannot buy an election if the comic of $2500 to a presidential candidate per election cycle. when you combine those relatively low campaignÑ contribution limit for the rapidly escalating cost of campaign, presidents are virtually forced to spend more and more time raising money and it has been an escalation. 20 years ago with stories about how the first president bush won a record-breaking fundraiser. thing about george w. bush and no
the government under bush's -- george w. bush's term and also received an additional $6 million under bush. now, granted, this $240 million in system litimulus money in 20 used $132 million of that. that is more than $6 million, but there could be some exposure on this for both sides for both parties. >> what about the white house? what are they saying? >> the white house pointed us to the department of energy, and they bring up that point that they have -- that this had bipartisan support, they also talk about this letter that the entire michigan delegation set back in 2009, urging the obama administration to make sure michigan gets some money for green jobs that was going to be given out. they also say that, you know, this company, a-123 systems, it is not going to shut operations. it is selling a lot of parts operations to another american based company, johnson controls. another auto parts company. it is not going to shut down. they say in a new industry like this, it is not uncommon to see some consolidation. a stronger company like johnson controls taking over part of a company that may f
. a former george bush speech writer saying, the fact he thought it would be desirable to ignore the world for 100 days is troubling. the fact that romney is recounting this anecdote does not reflect his understanding of the job he's campaigning for. there's no foreign policy subject on which i agree with either of those guys. they are absolutely the opposite end of the number line for me in terms of what i think america should do in the world. but even though i would agree with these guys on nothing else, on this, yeah, duh, i think we can agree that foreign policy is part of the job of president. that trying to get out of that isn't a good plan. national security is not something a president can say he doesn't want to work on. we have an answer for that. >> we can't be all thing s s tol people in the world, jim. and i think that's where maybe the vice president and i begin to have some differences. i'm worried about overcommitting our military around the world. i want to be judicious in its use. >> we have to be careful when we commit our troops. we have a disagreement about the use of t
's different from george bush. george bush didn't propose turning medicare into a voucher. george bush embraced comprehensive immigration reform. he didn't call for self-deportation. george bush never suggested that we eliminate funding for planned parenthood. so there are differences between governor romney and george bush. but they're not on economic policy. in some ways he's gone to a more extreme place when it comes to a social policy. >> welcome back from hofstra university for a special post-debate "hardball" tonight. our third "hardball" tonight. tonight president obama and mitt romney were for more engaged than the last debate. mitt romney's overly aggressive interrupting, both after the president and the moderator may not wear well with women voters. let's talk about the physicality, the mixing it up. i thought romney -- maybe this is just me -- looks like a big shot ceo who walks in the room and thinks he owns any room he walks in. and he starts pushing. it's almost physical. swats them away like flies. he knows they make less than him, and he treats them that way. you know what i'm t
hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the end of its shelf life, the accuracy of its forecasts for major storms like blizzards and hurricanes would be decreased by approximately 50%. and that's not just hey i can't tell what the weather's going to be like or i can't exactly tell where the storm's going to hit. it has ramifications.
, against george bush. george bush similarly seemed very unhappy to be there as the president. bush comes back in the second one and wins, goes on to win. so lots of opportunity for the president to come back. but clearly let romney back into this. >> i guess, sam, how far is mitt going to go towards the middle? i mean, bill brings up the question of reproductive rights, the obama care question is certainly still, you know, how much is mitt romney going to embrace massachusetts, his legacy there, in the coming weeks? it's a sharp pivot. >> wasn't just during the debate. he was on fox news saying his 47% comments were completely wrong after doing a press conference the night after saying he stood by the basic premise of it. they are pivoting, the extent to which it goes i have no idea. the extent to which he said he never wrote that op-ed never go bankrupt we'll have the full turn there. to get back to the first turn, i don't think their contradictory attacks by the obama campaign -- it's not that they're painting him as a flip flopper versus an always severe politician. what they're sayin
have been in washington when the presidency changed from democrat to republican under george bush and then from bill clinton to george w. bush and also when george w. bush won the second election. his relect and there is a tremendous and after the election which will be vitriolic and vicious, both political parties will come together with the idea they have to do better and there is a feeling of good will for who ever the president is and that will help us even if harry reid is in control of the u.s. senate which i hope never happens. >> hope springs eternal. of the wisconsin.from the we call would his opponent and never heard back. she is always welcome on here. and a lot more for what is at stake. we spent the better part of the two hours trying to save the country and in the very least making you aware of what is going down in this country. if we do that. our job is almost done here . bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks gre
for sheriff either. michael dukakis has run for sheriff, and so has george bush. >> governor, a one-minute response. >> i didn't hear the word "liberal" or "left" one time. i thank you for that. >> that's not bad. that's true. >> and doesn't that prove the point, george, which is that values like family and education and community, decent homes for young people. that family on long island i visited on monday were lou and betty tolamo, bought a house for some $19,000 back in 1962, have had seven children, they're all making good livings. they can't live in the community which they grew up in. those are basic american values. i believe in them. i think you believe in them. they're not left or right. they're decent american values. i guess the one thing that concerns me about this, ann, is this attempt to label things which all of us believe in. we may have different approaches. we may think that you deal with them in different ways. but they're basically american, i believe in them. george bush believes in them. i think the vast majority of americans believe in them. and i hope -- >>
george w. bush and his attendant countries involvement with the superpac, and american crossroads. [applause] be mac thank you. there's a little less than two months before the election and in many ways this is the time the book was designed for because this are into these last two months, this is the election really get going. and to me, one of the great untold stories is not just obama versus romney. it is obama versus karl rove and he's in behind the scenes the whole time and he has put together over $1 billion that will be spent in these last two months. read new york here are not going to see much spent in the battleground states. and he's become king of the sub two. he has cover when you put this together money with money romney has raised the republican national committee is a total of about $1.8 billion. to put that in this, in no way, mccain had 375 million to spend, so this is a fact or a five. you'll start seeing it come out now. the other thing i want to discuss about him, is susie really? what does he do? is a political operative. how does he operate? what does he do?
to george w. bush. >> see why ed gillespie doesn't look worried there? he's waiting for the interviewer to stop talking. he's just kind of waiting. i'm just going to go back to my talking points. there's a happy-go-luckiness. they don't get too stressed out because they know that politically, it doesn't matter what they say. they trust no matter what they are proposing and how it gets debunked, they know politically they will just seem like they are going to be good on the deficit. no matter what they propose. this is the most persistent myth in the modern politics in american money. the idea that republican presidents are good on the deficit. when, in fact, the exact opposite is our modern history. we learned the budget deficit topped a trillion dollars for the fourth year in a row. here's the context for that. here's our budget deficit in 2012. just over a trillion dollars. and here's what it was last year. president obama actually cut the deficit by more than $200 billion from the year before. here's the budget deficit that president obama was handed when he walked in the door. your
? george bush and i do. >> moderator: senator bentsen? bentsen: this conversion is interesting to me. [laughter] [applause] when he talks about a boston harbor and says he hasn't done anything, the facts are he has a 6 billion-dollar program under way on the waste treatment and it was this administration, their administration that cut out the money early on to be able to clean up water and made it impossible to move ahead on that time on the boston harbor the party of queen mary and the superfund in passing the superfund legislation and every environmental organization has now endorsed the bentsen ticket and i am one that has just received the environment, environmental award in texas for the work i've done to clean up the water off the coast of texas. i think we know who is going to clean up this environment. the record is there and the history is there and michael dukakis and bentsen will be committed to that. >> moderator: tom brokaw question for senator quayle. >> there's been a lot of talk of a campaign about family, the principal theme as i recall in your acceptance speech in n
was given the chance to compare mitt romney with george bush, he said romney was more right wing than the former president. >> there are some things where governor romney is different from george bush. heck, george bush didn't propose turning medicare into a voucher. george bush embraced comprehensive immigration reform. he didn't call for self-deportation. george bush never suggested that we eliminate funding for planned parenthood. so there are differences between governor romney and george bush, but they're not on economic policy. in some ways, he's gone to a more extreme place when it comes to social policies. >> this onslaught by president obama put mitt romney in a rough position. just like his answer on libya, romney had to move out of his comfort zone to respond to these allegations. he tried to say that he would be tough on china and president obama blasted him. >> trade. i'll crack down on china. president bush didn't. >> when he talks about getting tough on china, keep in mind that governor romney invested in companies that were pioneers of outsourcing to china. >> then rom
for a politician. how did he do? on the subject of embryonic stem cells, you might remember when george w. bush banned embryonic stem cells but he didn't. he never banned it. that was, we will be generous and say misinformation perpetuated by the media. he never banned stem cells. he did not limit funding to preexisting cell lines in 20 ones dems have lines were available after 2001. obama promised to fix that so he issued an executive order on march 92009. what did that do? it lifted the ban the quote unquote bandh van on federal funding so today as the time i put this talk together a month ago there were 178 stem cell lines available for federal funding but 160 lines available globally so we increased it from 21 lines to 178 lines. most notably, they must be derived. embryonic stem cells must be derived from leftover in vitro fertilization embryos and permission is required from parents. that has the effect of really limiting the number of embryonic stem cells that you can get. so the idea that the doors open on embryonic stem cell research is fiction. he did not. george bush left the door op
